The most interesting and conversational inanimate object to ever impact Long Painting has got to be Bertha (have you seen her Twitter feed?), the massive boring machine being used to tunnel through Seattle’s uber-underground. This week crews were able to identify what has blocked Bertha only one tenth of the way through her 1.7 mile journey: A metal pipe.
Bertha’s plight has intrigued us here at Long considering once she has completed her journey, we’ll begin ours through the new tunnel. Our work through the new SR99 corridor is scheduled to begin December of 2014.
